For my MOM, the time slides by so fast. The hunt still goes on for answers that you asked.
Thought I should say you come from a lady declared a Saint. She was also a Queen. She was born in Hungary and died as Queen of Scotland.
I learned our Ely line is really Italian, yes it is.
Haines is English and the line is long and varied.
Haven't heard from anyone going back to Germany again to knock on the Plantz Castle door.
Sure wish the first one hadn't bailed out and left before they opened the door.
Patience Tuttle's line goes back to early New England Tuttle's.
Morrow line does not appear to go back near as far. Still lost somewhere in Virginia.
Scott, is still lingering in Virginia and does connect with New England Scott line also.
Maybe two brothers landed different places, no idea at this point. Lots of data implies
Thomas Scott's wife was a Payne. Many still argue whether it was Lurana or Susanna yet.
One of those is the correct first name.
I know I shared with you that Elizabeth Higgins ancestors track us back to Pocahantus, as Grandad kept telling us. I bet when Grandad was young he may have been able to tell us more about this story since his Father shared the story with Grandma Inez when they married.
Stollar was: Hans van der Stoler
Direct ancestor (11 generations)
1617 - 1660
Direct ancestor (11 generations)

Haines also brought us Ridgeway and Allen.
A distant cousin sent me GGGrandfather Sanford Hoffman/Huffman's CW medal.
Jane Patterson was daughter of Joseph Patterson who became a Reverend after the Rev War and had three brothers in York Co. PA as near as I can learn and were also previously in NY. This is one of the links to Karen Phister who lived in Vallejo.
Duvall holds new information too.
Alexander DUVALL was born on 17 Aug 1710 in All Hallows Parish, Anne Arundel Co., MD. He was baptized on 25 Jul 1719 in All Hallows Parish, Anne Arundel Co., MD.
His father was, as listed below but we did not know of his status in the community.
Captain John DUVALL, married about 1686 to Elizabeth JONES. They had 11 children. One of the more important military officers of the Province. In 1704, he and his brother, Mareen the elder, were granted "Duvalls Delight", a patent of 3108 acres, located at the mouth of Rogues Harbor. It was one of the true manors in Anne Arundel County and is listed in Alice Norris Parran's "Register of Maryland Heraldic Families".
We learned that Massoit Duvall's wife was a Margaret Obin and that is a variant of D' Orbin which in the USA became Durbin.
Alexander Duvall 11 was a REV WAR veteran and has a DAR number and certificate. I think you knew that.
Alas MOM, no results on Elizabeth Richey. Still asking questions. Remembering she was the wife of Eli Duvall b 17 July 1790 Redstone Twp, Fayette Co. PA. Elizabeth was born 10 April 1797 Fayette Co. PA died 11 Jan 1872 East Millsboro, Fayette Co. PA. or 1806 conflicting information.
Their children were: Eli, John, Caleb B. , Harrison, Abigail, Rachel, Robert, & Eliza.
census implies a Virginia also.
